Deep-Fried candy bars are not the kind of thing that most of us make often; in fact, once a year right after Halloween will probably be it. The excuse to make and serve these calorie laden delicacies is that there are leftover Halloween candy bars and rather than eat them all ourselves, we must make something that can be enjoyed by family and friends.
The batter for these Deep-Fried Candy Bars is quick and easy. Other than that, all that is needed is a deep fryer or pan filled with oil, a few fun-size candy bars, and a little powdered sugar for sprinkling. If you object to the smell of deep frying in the house, you can reserve a clean place in the garage (I have a tool bench that I keep impeccably clean exclusively reserved for deep-frying and other stinky cooking) or on the patio (make sure it’s covered and dry so that no one gets electrocuted if it rains or gets damp). Deep-Fried Candy Bars are always a big hit at children’s parties; they can even be put on a stick before freezing and deep frying so the kids can hold them.
